The Arlington Voice reported that the
My comment was that they were complimentary businesses.
Too bad the city doesn’t try to shut down the toxic gas well neighbors too.
In the article a quote from a neighbor, Frank Jelinek, who is a lawyer… “Our personal objection is that they appear to be operating a business, and this is not a business area, it’s residential,”
Gee Mr Frank and a gas well complex is okey dokey in your residential area?
I commented on this youtube video…
“Renting this as a nightclub is a safer use than having a family be made to LIVE 218 feet from a toxic gaswell across the street! If the city can allow URBAN INDUSTRIAL DRILLING, then they should allow a nightclub so that this business can generate revenue to pay its taxes!. To be legal, they do need to apply for a Special use Permit like the frackers did. Otherwise they need to rent out the bedrooms as temp lodging-I don’t agree that the owner MUST live in a home so close to a padsite-no one should be made to live within 600 feet (which violates the city’s own designated gaswell setback distance!) They need to assign a portion of the home (as stipulated in the city code) as the ‘bar area by donation’. Problem solved-except for the toxic gaswell neighbor.”
The Arlington Voice goes on to report quotes from our Public Enemy, Jim Parajon, (Deputy City Manager) saying…“Eutopia’s operations are not the type of operations customarily conducted in a residential dwelling unit”. “The number and scale of Eutopia’s operations, in addition to the neighborhood complaints, clearly show the negative impact on the surrounding residential neighborhood.”
Well golly bejezus Mr Parajon, you just described Urban Drilling!
The one thing the city got right is that they don’t try to regulate MORALITY…which follows why there is fracking in our good town.
